| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Seahawks are 2x tougher at home - siliconvalleytiger on 12/2/13 at 9:28 pm|
This is what they do to pretty much every team including the 49ers (my team). Saints just need to get out of here with no injuries and move to the next game. The Seahawks will show their true colors early in the playoffs....
| Tiger Rant|| LSU fans' opinion on the SEC possibly left out of NC - siliconvalleytiger on 12/1/13 at 8:05 pm|
A part of me thinks it's bad because LSU may well find itself in a similar predicament and we want a strong SEC brand to help us. But then, I really don't care about the SEC brotherhood thing and want to laugh at Bama and Auburn's sorrows....
| More Sports Board|| Once he starts his lobbying, how hypocritical will Meyer appear? - siliconvalleytiger on 12/1/13 at 2:00 pm|
Considering he did nothing but talk up the SEC and effectively berate the toughness of the big 10 before his health issues. ...
| Tiger Rant|| I was a bit worried about Arky - siliconvalleytiger on 12/1/13 at 12:04 pm|
They were hot garbage most of the season but I was surprised to see them play MSU so tough. I was expecting that game to be a blowout but Arky brought it down to the wire. Their defense looked much improved in their last 2 games.
This isn't an excuse. We should still have handled Arky by 2 scores...
| More Sports Board|| I'm looking forward to the coaches politicking the next few weeks - siliconvalleytiger on 12/1/13 at 12:05 am|
Certainly expect Urban Meyer to shed his usual fake tears ensuring his team doesn't get left out. Malzahn almost has to resort to it because he'll have ground to make up. Saban usually doesn't but we shall see. The guys looking in may need to start talking too in case they find themselves in the mix...
| More Sports Board|| Who does ESPN want in the NC game? - siliconvalleytiger on 11/30/13 at 10:23 pm|
Because their machinery will go into marketing overdrive until they get the matchup they want. I think it will be Ohio St because they prefer big market teams.
Provided OSU take care of business....
| Tiger Rant|| Your favorite sideline/non-game moment yesterday - siliconvalleytiger on 11/30/13 at 1:17 pm|
I know Mett crying while singing was emotional for many but this right here showed you everything you needed to know about Mett. Like a big brother.
I think he surprised AJ a bit. :lol:
| Tiger Rant|| Next year is beginning to shape up - siliconvalleytiger on 11/30/13 at 11:31 am|
Secondary is playing much better with leaders appearing. D line cannot get any worse and LBs are beginning to improve as well. (Yes, even Welter). The defense as a unit will play much better next year. This was a year of growing pains.
QB will be a drop off for sure, how can it not be? But AJ10 i...
| Tiger Rant|| Can't recall a more emotinally charged ending - siliconvalleytiger on 11/30/13 at 10:57 am|
LSU has won plenty of big games but I can't recall a more emotionally charged game for the players and the fans. The injuries and the odds stacked against AJ at the end added to the electricity. It was a great ending to the season with the changing of the guard, I'll never forget it.
And yes, I ...

Felt that way after the last TD. May just have been back to back....
| SEC Rant|| At least Houston Nutt got Arky the occasional super bowl plus a 3rd tier bowl - siliconvalleytiger on 11/29/13 at 6:56 pm|
I really think Arky should beg for him to return. It really was a match made in heaven. Same tier and everything. Life just hasn't been the same since he left....

And sends them to a better bowl over us, how would you react? I know there's little recourse but how should LSU express it's displeasure? I have a strong feeling it will happen again. ...

I'm not sure there are too many coaches out there who could motivate this team to play so well given where we were placed. Well done, sir!...
| Tiger Rant|| At the risk of being a sore winner, the officiating was bad - siliconvalleytiger on 11/24/13 at 12:48 am|
The 4th down bad spot, the consistent no calls on Evans and blatant holds evertime Manziel took off. Didn't cost us but doesn't change how terrible Ritter and crew were and frankly, have been through the years....
| Tiger Rant|| ObJ is one classy individual - siliconvalleytiger on 11/24/13 at 12:32 am|

| Tiger Rant|| When we're bad, Is it harder to watch a bad LSU offense or defense? - siliconvalleytiger on 11/17/13 at 1:58 pm|
For me, it's harder to watch when LSU has a bad defense. Having a ferocious, run stopping, hard hitting, ball hawking defense is almost an identity for LSU. With a bad offense, I always feel our defense would bail us out and win us the game....

| Tiger Rant|| I think Miles haters may get their wish - siliconvalleytiger on 11/10/13 at 5:45 pm|
If LSU loses the next 3 games badly and next year turns out to be to the cluster we all expect, Miles will be gone. I don't think it will play out that way but it is possible....
| Tiger Rant|| The last 10 mins of that game were very difficult to watch - siliconvalleytiger on 11/10/13 at 2:52 pm|
Putting aside the negatiger vs positiger debate, the last few minutes of that game were very hurtful to watch. Seeing the team quit like that on Mett, the other team imposing their will on us and the general feeling of helplessness isn't something we're used to as fans.
I hope this is a catalyst ...
| Tiger Rant|| Our defensive starters are mostly backups pressed into service - siliconvalleytiger on 11/10/13 at 1:05 pm|
Guys like Ego and Anthony Johnson are gap filler type of players who spend most of their careers rotating out the starters. But given the attrition, we've had to press them into service. The same is true for most of the LB corps and the secondary with one or two exceptions.
As much as it sounds l...
| Tiger Rant|| The last two seasons are a lot like 08-09 - siliconvalleytiger on 11/10/13 at 12:29 pm|
After the 07 run, we had many defections to the NFL and quite frankly, their replacements just weren't as good. Miles handled the problem. Hired Chavis, we recruited well and were back to our old ways in 2010.
I think our current struggles are a combination of defections and inferior talent at th...
| Tiger Rant|| Defense still wins championships in the SEC - siliconvalleytiger on 11/10/13 at 12:25 pm|
LSU and A&M are prime examples of how prolific offenses just cannot get the job done. It's weird because this age old adage doesn't even hold true in the NFL anymore but it does in this one conference.
LSU will fix this defense and we'll be back. I still have faith....
